What you can expect

Travel back in time to the early days the nation with a tour that immerses you in Charleston's historic sights and centuries-old landmarks. Afterward, peruse the fascinating exhibits of the Charleston Museum—recognized by the American Alliance of Museums as the first museum in the country.

Get picked up from your hotel and snag a seat on an air-conditioned vehicle for a 90-minute ride around utterly charming Charleston. Packed with buildings that predate the American Revolution, this city bears traces of more than 300 years of history. Cruise down residential lanes lined with colonial townhouses, and pass by the stately churches and government buildings at the intersection known as The Four Corners of Law.

Snap photos of the pastel-hued Georgian houses along Rainbow Row, and delve into the days of the Civil War at the Battery Waterfront, where you can spot beautiful mansions along the harbor, old cannons in the shade of leafy oak trees, and surf crashing against the sturdy stone walls of Fort Sumter.

Afterward, visit the Charleston Museum, which was founded all the way back in 1773—before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Admire collections of antique furniture and silver, Lowcountry textiles and ceramics, and 19th-century firearms. You can also peek at the only known fossil of the extinct Pelagornis sandersi, which was discovered during construction at Charleston's airport.
